Yep, that "Click to Tweet" right there is exactly what I'm talking about. :)
When readers of the Post Planner blog click a "Click to Tweet" link, they're given the option of tweeting something from the post without leaving the article.
Try it above! It works. :)
And of course, we make sure these tweets include links to @PostPlanner & the blog post.
You’ve probably seen "Click to Tweet" links in many of our recent articles.
These links encourage people to share different parts of the article on Twitter -- and those who really like the post can even tweet more than once.

Tips for Tweeting
Your pre-written tweets should contain:
- A tweetable quote from the blog post (stats work great here!)
- Source (your Twitter handle)
- Blog post URL (shortened with bitly)
Remember to wait until the post is actually published before you add the bitly link. You'll need to publish the post, go create the bitly link, then quickly head back to your blog editor & add the bitly links to each Click to Tweet.
I recommend embedding tweets evenly throughout your blog posts. But remember: less is more.
And make tweets conversational -- not just headlines.
